The smartest move that this first episode makes is to transfer the audience into the perspective of a brand-new character, essentially using Switch's mutant power to rescue the story, the series, and the characters from the dour fate it created.
There's a clear direction, strong character motivations, and just enough that's new so the series doesn't repeat itself. It's something of a surprise to be sure, but definitely a welcome one.
Noah Hawley is in pure form in the season opener to the final season of Legion. If you loved the insanity of the first two seasons, you should watch this episode now.
If this premiere is any indication, Season 3 will give us plenty to think about / talk about / love / trip over.
FX's Legion got trippier than ever in its third and final season premiere, with David leading a far-out cult of hippies.
Coupled with Switch and a strong visual command, the show is confident heading towards its end, Noah Hawley & Nathaniel Halpern's clever writing setting a stage of completely open possibilities.
Though Legion's whacky ways could be grating last year, the Season 3 premiere successfully splits the difference between psychedelic eye-candy and intriguing story developments.
